I live in SE PA. I spend the bulk of my time writing computer programs. When I'm not doing that, I spend a lot of time reading about Home Improvements, Real Estate Valuation, new home improvement tools, talking to close friends that are professional electricians, plumbers, home builders, telephone technicians, and painters (and I'm sure I forgot one or 2). I've done a lot of my own work with their direction or from my father who has taught me most of what I know (thanks Dad!)
I post on only 2 boards which is plenty. I don't consider myself an expert in anything BUT I know enough to be dangerous in some things. I enjoy sharing what I know and sharing information that might prevent my 'troubles' from happening to others.
